Abstract or Description

Using ArcScene and Google Sketchup I was able to create a semi-realistic, three-dimensional map of the Colby College campus. A 3D GIS map of the campus had never been made before and the project could be used in the future for: planning new building projects, running interesting visual analysis, and as a new way to view campus.
